I think it is difficult for today's audiences to imagine the impact that Nigel Kneale's stories had on popular culture at the time they were broadcast. Stories of pubs emptying and council meetings adjourning early on "Quatermass night" were commonplace. I think their main impact was down to Kneale's superb story-telling - a skill that modern TV scriptwriters seem to have forgotten. Surely it must be time for the BBC to show these stories again, or remake them?
